Many Americans read or heard about the tragic death of a teenager who stuck his head out of a roof hatch of a double-decker party bus in New Jersey in the summer of 2012. This was a very rare occurrence. Most bus accidents are not so dramatic by comparison. However, accidental deaths by more common types of bus accidents also cause great loss to family members. Accidental injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, back injuries, neck injuries or spinal cord injuries result in substantial expenses as well as pain and suffering. Serious injuries to children boarding or riding school buses are particularly tragic. These children and their parents trusted bus drivers and bus companies to keep them safe while in transit to and from school.
With some of the nation’s busiest highways, including the New Jersey Turnpike carrying commuters to and from New York City, our state’s roadways are some of the most congested in the U.S. If you were injured or if your loved one was killed in a New Jersey bus accident, the personal injury attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP are available to evaluate your case.
